About the reserve
Originally a claypit, this site was used as a landfill site until an area of it was licensed to the Trust. The landfill site was capped with "river sand" and seeded with an agricultural sand mix, with plantations of Corsican pine in the grassland area and a small plantation of broadleaved trees in the north eastern corner. The combination of wetland, grassland, scrub, and trees is very valuable for wildlife in general.
